Flyfishing Tarpon Advice

I have had several very successful tarpon seasons over here on the East Coast recently so I have decided to try and catch some of these jumbos at the beach on fly from the kayak this year. This is the only venue I know of with experienced beachside kayak fly anglers that have targeted tarpon. So any...

Re: Living Vicariously

Ok guys, here it is. I grew up in the Tampa Bay area but my job moved me to Atlanta in 1989, though I am still a saltwater loving, Florida boy at heart. I usually only get to make a few trips a year to the sunshine state with kayaks in tow for some good ole skinny water flats fishing. The rest of t...

The Tarpon Madness Continues!!! Playalinda 8-6-13

Suede and I decided sometime last week that we wanted to hit the beach again searching for tarpon. This time around we would be solely concentrating on getting him into an epic battle with one of these leviathans. We picked Tuesday as the day to do it based on the winds and the fact that I would be ...

Dave,

How deep are you setting your slip float? I have yet to have on pick the bait up with a float, only free-lined, sight casted, or as an incidental catch when trolling for kings.

Beach Tarpon Madness: Brevard Cnty, FL 7-10-13**VIDEO ADDED*

Suede and I decided last minute this morning to try a run on the tarpon that should be cruising the Brevard County beaches right now. I picked Suede up from his place at around 5 am and headed east. Without much in the way of tarpon tackle on hand and no time to hit Bass Pro Shops we decided to just...

The shark surely tried to do just that, but the angler wasn't having any of it

Hair Raising Hammerhead Encounter While Offshore Kayaking!!

I don't know how I forgot to post this here, I know a few of you may be able to relate. While two friends and I were offshore fishing on Tuesday about a 10' hammerhead shark came up behind one friend and latched onto the back of his kayak. He smacked the shark with his paddle several time before the...

Sailfish At The EKFT Tournament. **VIDEO**

I forgot to post this here, but here it goes. I landed this Sailfish at the end of the day at the Extreme Kayak Fishing May Madness Tournament in Pompano Beach on May 18th. Fighting the fish caused me to miss the weigh-in, but the tournament was a blast anyway. Check it out. https://www.youtube.com/...

October Fishing Video East Coast

Ok, here is a video I made from a few less than spectacular fishing trips. I tried a little different style. Let me know what you guys think. The video should be watched in HD for full effect.

Re: Kayak VS Boat Tug-Of-War at the EKFT (VIDEO)

All was well. I fixed the damage to the yak and I was only down one rod for the day.
